The country singer, Kellie Pickler has named several people in the industry who were the sources of her inspiration.

The songstress known as Kellie Pickler didn’t just get up one day and become a living legend. It was a whole lengthy process she had to undergo before she reached her current status as a country singing star. See Photos of Kellie Pickler below.

Kellie celebrated her 28th birthday on June 28. She was very happy. She also thanked all on her twitter who send her birthday wishes.

Kellie Pickler recently cited several other singers in the industry who were her polestars and showed her the way. Tammy Wynette is one of them. Kellie said that she was pretty impressed by Tammy whose videos she heard on YouTube every time she was alone on a bus. And she felt just like the lady was with her when she heard her songs. 

She was definitely one of the all-time greats who inspired Kellie to start singing country music. And she had an equally adorable view of Loretta Lynn. She too knew how to catch the audience’s attention without much ado. 

“She is one of the reasons I fell in love with country music,” she told Rolling Stone (via FoxNews). “I have sat on my bus and YouTubed videos of her singing. I just close my eyes and I feel like she’s right there with me, singing. I’m hanging on to every word. And I love that she just stood there and sang her songs.”

Pickler mentioned how Loretta Lynn was with her one time in Canada and she just sang one song after another so naturally and without taking a break that it wowed the crowd. 

"We did a show a few years ago with Loretta Lynn in Canada and it was just her, her band and her big sparkly dress. She stood there, behind that microphone, and just sang hit after hit, and everyone was hanging on every note, every lyric. She didn't need people swinging from the rafters to get their attention. She had the power of a great country song. Tammy and Loretta both did," said Kellie Pickler.

Some other singers who were Pickler’s heroes and heroines included: Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline as well as Katharine McPhee and Mandisa. 

"She is another big reason I fell in love with country music. For me, her life is a country song. And she is a true…I don't like to say 'Cinderella story,' because she made it on her own," Kellie said about Dolly Parton. She didn't depend on a man on a white horse to come save the day. She did it herself. She is just a true rags-to-riches story."

Kellie especially listed her immediate and extended family as the main factors in her rise to success. She is also thankful to her dad Clyde Pickler Jr., grandfather Clyde Pickler, grandmother Faye Pickler.

Pickler also mentioned her husband Kyle as a very supportive person who took her side no matter what. He was always there by her side and even helped her with some of her lyrics. Not for a single moment did he betray her or let her down which is something rather miraculous in today’s world. 

"My husband Kyle changed my life. He is my sanctuary and my safe place to come to. We write together and we work together some and he brings out the best in me. We wrote my album title, 'The Woman I Am,' together. I was doing a phone interview earlier that day and was asked, 'If I were to play a song for a friend who didn't know anything about country music, what song that best describes you would it be?" I said I hadn’t written it yet. So I told my husband about the conversation and we wrote it. He makes me a better person and a better artist."

 

She was so lucky to have the best family in the world. Her journey as a country musician had been one of absorbing what was useful from so many and rejecting what was useless. 

She had covered so much ground because she was standing on the shoulders of giants. And today she could only thank the ten thousand influential personalities that had molded her into Kellie Pickler.
